After taking a look at the projected starting backcourts last week, let’s move on to their frontcourt counterparts.

Here is a ranking of all the projected starting frontcourts from 1-30. Remember as a subjective list, it is likely you won’t agree with all of it.

While depth charts from RotoWorld, RealGM, and ESPN were used, they didn’t always all agree as to what each team’s starting frontcourt would be. In those instances, I gave my best guess.

1

Clippers - Paul George/Kawhi Leonard/Ivica Zubac

George finished third both in MVP and Defensive Player of the Year voting last season with the Thunder, while Leonard won Finals MVP with the Raptors.

2

Bucks - Khris Middleton/Giannis Antetokounmpo/Brook Lopez

Antetokounmpo is the reigning MVP, Middleton made the All-Star team last season, and Lopez filled a perfect role as a stretch-five.

3

76ers - Tobias Harris/Al Horford/Joel Embiid

This isn’t just one of the most talented starting frontcourts, but perhaps also the largest.
